First In

I welcome you to my blog site; I hope to show you the fire service in NLC in some interesting events. During the next few years, I will improve on the content and photos to keep you coming back for more. I take pride in my photography and try my best to be first in when possible. The majority of the photos will be from the Norwich companies & surrounding area departments, but sometimes I Buff out of state cities for a change of pace.

As of late I have missed or worked a lot of the incidents. I have a great support group of Photographers to help the site keep up with all the incidents. There are too many to list, So thanks for your support. Thanks for visiting and enjoy .RD Ladd

East Hampton, Mill Fire 05-26-12

At 2340 East Hampton Fire responded to 4 Bevin Blvd for a fire in the Bevin Bell factory. The building was well involved on arrival. This company has been in business for 179 years. This will be a bad for the local economy. About one hour into the fire the area residents and firefighters were evacuated from the immediate vicinity due to the fire starting to involve propane tanks. At least one exploded. Mutual aid from many departments (25+) assisted at the scene and for coverage. 


once a few others post there photos I will link them.
